Winter Steel Wheels And Or Tyres

6 posts in this topic

Hi I have a 2009 fiesta titanium 1.4 tdci with standard 16”
alloys fitted. I’m looking to get some wheels from the scappies then get winter
tyres fitted. Anyone know what size I understand they need to be 14” to fit my
car and from what ford models. Also can you recommend a winter tyre?

Thanks in advance.
Regards Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

Ideal size for winter tyres is 15" radius

You don't have to get them from a ford model specifically,

As long as they are a 4 bolt formation you will be fine.

I would also recommend 15" steel wheels with 195/50/15 tyres. I've found continental to be very good. Last year was my first with Vredestein and also very good brand.

Just be sure I make sure they fit the hub correctly as the weight of the car should not be resting on the wheel bolts/studs

Best I've ever had continental ts850s would recommend to anyone. I fitted mine to 16" standard ford alloys as I bought 17" aftermarket alloys
